We had 1 night in this hotel.
We arrived into Turin by train, not many people spoke English in the location, and we did struggle to find someone to help with directions to get to hotel.
So - here they are : Get off train station in Porta Susa, go down to Metro (subway) and take 1 stop to Principi D'Acaja, turn left and cross the main street/tram lines and hotel just a few minutes from there. Buy your ticket from machine first - think it was 1 or 2 Euro each.
Our overnight stay was at the very end of our holiday (in Lake Garda) and we used Turin as a stop-over for a night as we were travelling back to UK by train, via Paris. We'd also just found out that morning a family member had passed away, so we werent in right frame of mind to enjoy Turin or this hotel, but as we couldnt get home, we made best of a very bad situation.
The hotel itself had some charm about it, very high ceilings, very grand curtains, but it was a dark room with 2 single beds, and the bathroom was very dated. It was adequate for our needs though, and it felt authentic and italian. We left very early the next morning, so didnt get breakfast unfortunately, although we'd paid for it.
There was a torrential downpour in the afternoon, so we didnt venture out till evening, but that suited us as we needed to use the wi-fi and sort out plans and phone home etc.
The gentleman on Reception was very very helpful though, and recommended a restaurant nearby - where we had the best meal of our holiday - Gusti e Sapori (see separate review on this)
I dont have anything to really compare this hotel to (our holiday hotel was far more luxurious but we paid a lot more for it) but this seemed to be adequate for 1 night and I picked it because of its location and unique-ness - and we got what we paid for. I'd stay again though but Turin isnt likely to be on my radar again - extremely built up and busy and we didnt have time or inclination to really explore anyway.
